Faces of The Child Migrant Crisis

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

The photography exhibit “Faces of The Child Migrant Crisis” opened November 3 at the Richard J. Daley Civic Center and runs through December 5, 2014. The Daley Center is located at 50 West Washington Street. The exhibit features 16 black-and-white portraits taken by award-winning photographer Michelle Frankfurter. For six years Frankfurter traveled the most common migration route from Central America to the U.S. border – la bestia or “the beast” – the Mexican freight train named for the dangers it poses to its migrant passengers. The exhibit also features text and photographs to contextualize the current crisis. Produced by HumanEYES USA, the exhibition has been brought to Chicago by ART WORKS Projects.
